Hilary Boynton is a certified holistic health counselor, received a BA in psychology from the University of Virginia and was trained at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. The devoted mother of five young kids, Hilary has seen the power of nutritional healing firsthand. Inspired by her own experience of “food as medicine,” she has dedicated herself to helping others on their path to wellness as a cook, coach, and professional educator. Hilary supports her clients by integrating “Paleo” and “Primal” philosophies with the wisdom of the Ancestral Health Movement and the Weston A. Price Foundation. Hilary is a Weston A. Price chapter leader, runs several local food co-ops, teaches cooking classes out of her house, and helped to open a farm-to-table restaurant in Concord, Massachusetts, where she lives with her family.

Mary Giordano Brackett is a whole foods advocate and a creative visionary based out of Boston, Massachusetts. After receiving her BFA in photography from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Mary went on to photograph hundreds of weddings, events, people, and places before recognizing her true passion: the healing power of real food. Combining a love of photography with a devotion to nutrition is her life’s work, illustrating and illuminating the importance of our food choices. Mary’s work has been featured in many publications online and in print, as well as in numerous restaurants and cafes throughout the city. She is currently pursuing a master’s degree in nutrition in hopes of helping people free themselves from the tyranny of frankenfood and reclaim their birthright: health and happiness. Mary happily serves up three homemade meals a day to her husband and son in their Watertown, Massachusetts home. Her work can be viewed at



Charlie Foster joins Woods Hill Table as executive chef with ten years of experience working for acclaimed chefs such as Daniel Boulud and Ken Oringer. Working closely with the farm at Woods Hill and the many small farms around Concord, MA, Charlie will be preparing delicious and nutritional food selected from The Heal Your Gut Cookbook.



Kristin Canty is the director/producer of Farmageddon: The Unseen War on American Family Farms. She is a first-time filmmaker, small farm advocate, fresh milk drinker and mom. One of her children was ridden with multiple allergies and asthma as a pre-schooler, and when medications couldn’t help him, she found that raw milk helped him recover. Since then, she has tried to buy most of her family’s food directly from local, organic farms. When Kristin learned that farmers and co-ops all over the country were increasingly getting raided by the government, she set out to make a film about it. She hopes that when people see it, it can change the tide of public pressure so that our government stops harassing and adding costly burdens to our small, organic farmers. Kristin lives in Concord, Massachusetts with her husband, four children, two dogs, two cats and 11 chickens.
